The Hawks have the second-longest NBA championship drought of 57 seasons, only being surpassed by the Sacramento Kings in that category. There were 48 years where the team did not advance past the second round of the playoffs until breaking through in 2015.

The Hawks have only drafted 4 players who have been chosen to play in an All-Star game, Doc Rivers, Kevin Willis, Al Horford, and Jeff Teague. They acquired franchise superstar Dominique Wilkins via a trade with the Utah Jazz and promoted Mike Fratello to head coach in 1983. With Wilkins on the team, the Hawks became one of the NBA’s elite franchises, winning 50 games or more each season from 1985 to 1989. They went on to win a division title in 1986–87 with a franchise record 57–25. In 2005, the Hawks worked out a sign and trade deal with the Phoenix Suns for Joe Johnson.

Present Hawks era

In 2013, a new Hawks era began with the hiring of San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer as their new head coach. That same year, the Hawks had 4 draft picks which they used to draft point guards Dennis Schröder (17th pick) and Shane Larkin (18th pick), point guard Raulzinho Neto with the 47th pick and small forward James Ennis with the 50th pick.

The Hawks became the first NBA team to ever go 17-0 in a calendar month when they beat Portland on January 31, 2015. Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and Al Horford were selected for the 2015 Eastern All-star squad. The Hawks clinched their first Southeast Division title in over two decades and went on to clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The team’s 60-22 record was a franchise-best.

In the Eastern Conference first round saw the Hawks defeat the Brooklyn Nets in six games. In the Eastern Conference semifinals, the Hawks faced the Washington Wizards and defeating them in six games. In the Eastern Conference finals, the team lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in four games.
